Widewater Lagoon & Warnham LNR
Sun was shining this morning... needed food shopping... but before that I headed off to Widewater Lagoon
Quiet which is not surprising given the time of the year.. lotsa House Sparrows about... saw a group of 5 Little Egrets.. plus another couple of isolated ones. Family of 6 Mute Swans.. 3 Cormorants at one time and various gulls and an 'odd' (I think) duck... see below.
I can only assume this is a hybrid Mallard?.. there are several on Widewater although none apparent today.. however..
5 swimmers.. they might be a club as all wearing the same swim headgear!!
and then later, onto Warnham LNR - fairly quiet here too.
A very young and tiny Marsh frog.. about 2 inches long!!
The one that got away!!
And adult Marsh Frogs..
Pleasant time out before some basic and boring shopping!!
A lover of wildlife and birds in particular and a keen photographer
who's learning all the time!
For me there's nothing better than the great outdoors and escaping into
it as often as I can; even if it's only a walk very locally. I love the
sea and water in any form. There's something magical about reflections
in very still water.
